The Masculine in Relationship Episode 174, March 17, 2020
Coach and author, GS Youngblood, joins us to discuss men, women, relationships, and the keys to developing your masculine core. His new book is called, The Masculine in Relationship: A Blueprint for Inspiring the Trust, Lust, and Devotion of a Strong Woman.
“If you’re not receiving your woman’s pain, if you can’t hear it, validate it, and make space for it – she’s going to turn up the volume on you.” ~ GS Youngblood
GS wants people to learn from his mistakes and grow from being a somewhat emasculated man to being someone sitting in their masculine power. Being able to operate in the moment of choice, before automatic reactions fire.
The book, Masculine in Relationship, offers an actionable three-part framework to strengthen your masculine core. This includes: responding vs. reacting, providing structure, and creating safety. This model of masculine power takes nothing away from feminine strength. You can develop your masculine core and leadership, and realize that relationships are not a zero-sum game.
Masculine power can successfully co-exist with the strong feminine. We explore what men do that leads to women feeling abandoned, how we can tame our anxiety, get in touch with our emotions and our masculine core.
